Hannah Tuttle1,2

F, #18836, b. 20 January 1633, d. 8 August 1683
  • Reference: W015 ID782
  • Birth: 17 August 1623; Ringstead, Northampton, England3
  • Birth*: 20 January 1633; Ringstead, Northampton, England; father Richard Tuttle2
  • (Bride) Marriage*: 23 June 1654; Wethersfield, Hartford Co., Connecticut, USA; Mr. Thomas WELLS sonn of Mr. Thomas WELLS, magistrate of Wethersfield, was married to Mrs. Hannah Pantree of Hartford, widdowe the 23 day of June one thousand sixe hundred fifty four.; Groom=Thomas Welles4,2
  • Burial*: 8 August 1683; Ancient Burying Ground, Hartford, Hartford Co., Connecticut, USA;

    Hannah Tuttle, dau. of Richard Tuttle and Ann Taylor, bp. Aug. 17, 1623 at Ringstead, Northamptonshire, England. In April 1635 called "Anna aged 12," she sailed with her parents from the Port of London on the ship Planter and arrived at Boston, Mass. by the following July. That she was recorded as "aged" 12 means in April 1635 she was then 11 years old consistent with her known date of baptism. She d. Aug. 8, 1683 at Hartford, Conn., "aged" 60, not 50.

    According to a 1898 issue of the Connecticut Quarterly Magazine, Hannah's gravestone was standing at Hartford's Center (aka Ancient) Cemetery in 1835, with the inscribed statement that she died "aged" 50.[*1] However, her age at death is mis-stated, when actually she died "aged 60." Based on this errant inscription, George F. Tuttle, author of the 1883 Tuttle Genealogy (1:1, 1:82), claimed Hannah was the dau. of her uncle, William Tuttle of New Haven, Conn. This wrong identification was carried forward by Barbour in "Families of Early Hartford, Connecticut." In addition, the 1902 restoration of Hartford's Ancient Burying Ground did not then include restoration of Hannah's gravestone. However, a photo of her half-buried gravestone taken in 2006 versus a photo of her fully upright gravestone in 2015, indicate Hannah's gravestone was restored between the latter two dates.

    In 1974 Donald Lines Jacobus proved and corrected Hannah's parental association error (The American Genealogist, 30:7). William Tuttle's dau. Ann, bp. Jan. 20, 1632/3, who George Tuttle confused as being one and the same as Hannah, brother Richard's dau., accompanied her cousin Hannah in 1635 aboard the Planter. Ann, dau. of John, m. 1) Joshua Judson of Stratford, Conn. and 2) John Hurd, Jr. of Stratford and Woodbury, Conn.

    In circa 1649, Hannah Tuttle, dau. of Richard, m. 1) John Pantry, s. of William and Margaret Pantry of Hartford, Conn. He d. testate betw. Sept. 1 and Nov. 25, 1653 at Hartford leaving three infant children to be raised by their stepfather: John Pantry, Hannah Pantry (d. unm.) and Mary (Pantry) Mix.

    On June 23, 1654 at Hartford, Hannah m. 2) the Hon. Thomas Welles, Jr., s. of Gov. Thomas Welles and Alice Tomes,[*2] b. in England. He d. intestate at Hartford bef. Aug. 20, 1668 with his probate record under the surname of Welles. He is referred to in the records as the "Worshipful" Thomas Welles. They had seven children: Rebecca (Welles) Judson, Thomas, Sarah (Welles) Bidwell, Ichabod, Samuel, Jonathan (d. unm) and Joseph. That Hannah's gravestone spells her last married name as "Wells" versus "Welles" is highly suggestive her gravestone was erected long after her death and is likely the reason her age at death is incorrectly inscribed.

    During the entirety of her second marriage, Hannah (Tuttle)(Pantry) Welles' mother-in-law, her 2nd husband's step-mother, was Elizabeth (Deming)(Foote) Welles, the writer's ancestor. Elizabeth died testate at Hartford in 1683 just 12 days before Hannah. Two of Hannah's grandchildren, by dau. Sarah (Welles) Bidwell, m. grandchildren of two additional sets of the writer's ancestors.

    [*1] The Connecticut Quarterly, IV (1898):85; The Ancient Burying Ground of Hartford - Welles, Hannah, died 1683, age 50. The associated 1835 standing gravestone list was compiled by Mary K. Talcott and also appears in the 1904 pamphlet "Restoration of the Ancient Burying Ground and Widening of Gold Street."
    [*2] Barbour in "Early Families of Hartford, Conn.," p. 657, calls his mother Elizabeth Hunt. Jacobus in "Hale, House..." (1952, p. 778) clearly identifies her as Alice Tomes, dau. of John and Ellen (Gunne)(Phelps) Tomes, with accompanying ancestry.

    Robbins

    Robbins is a very old and numerous surname in England , derived from the personal name, Robin , and identical with Robinson in derivation. There have been many prominent men of this family both in England and America .
    (I) John Robbins , progenitor of this family, lived at Hedingworth, Leicestershire, England , and his ancestors doubtless lived there for generations before him, though the lineage has not been traced. The name was common for many generations in that section. He was a large landowner and a man of substance. He died at Hedingworth , August 12, 1680 , probably about ninety years of age. His wife Hester was buried there August 7, 1697 . Children: John , mentioned below; Nicholas , 167 settled in Duxbury, Massachusetts ; Thomas settled in Duxbury ; Samuel , settled in Salisbury, Massachusetts , where he died in 1665 , leaving a will from which the remainder of the family is identified and the relationship established: Joseph , remained in England .
    (II) "Gentleman" John (2), son of John (1) Robbins , was born at Hedingworth, England . He settled at Wethersfield, Connecticut , as early as 1638 . He was a man of means and high social standing, whence the title "gentleman" given to him by historians. He had a grant of land at Wethersfield , October 10, 1638 , and other grants later. He was selectman in 1652 : deputy to the general court in 1653-56-57-59 . He died June 27, 1660 , and his inventory amounted to five hundred and seventy-nine pounds, nineteen shillings, four pence. He married, about the middle of September, 1639 , Mary , daughter or sister of Governor Thomas and Elizabeth Welles . The estate was distributed to the children by order of the court dated June 5, 1662 .
